Oh no! That’s such a pain. The good news is from what I understand these things are pretty easy to treat. Soup would be a good thing to eat. Homemade pea and mint soup? Yum. Now I’m hungry…

I had a friend who had one. They told him to also avoid acidic things, like citrus and tomatoes. I guess broccoli was supposed to be good for it though! Good luck!

layla, spicy foods is in my list of things i like on WB: art, design, kittens, spicy foods, travel, my man, the beach, seashell collecting . I think you can get through this – do everything the doctor says so you can enjoy some indian or thai food again very soon!  Until you can, everytime I dig into a chicken tikka masala I will send you the good spicy get well vibes.

I am so sorry to hear that!

Basically you want to try and avoid anything that will increase your hydrochloric acid (stomach acid) in your stomach. Your stomach has a mucous coating that protects it from your natural acids that break down foods. When you have an ulcer this mucous barrier is broken and the acids start eating away at your stomach lining! You want to avoid anything that will aggravate the area – try eating less (less acid produced to break down food) and eating very bland things and no acidic/spicy things!

I would be very upset about the spicy foods also! Love my spice!

I know it sucks but I hope you feel better soon!!!!!

๐Ÿ™ I’m so sorry! That stinks! Sounds you like you are going to be a very tired Layla for a few days with no caffine! I’ll try to get a jump on those cookies, cause they’re not spicy!

Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear! Hopefully, when you go to a gastro doctor, they’ll be able to tell you more about what you can or can’t eat. Or, it could also be gallstones! My brother had a ton of issues and they initially thought it was a gastric ulcer, but found out he had gall stones instead. He had to have his gallbladder removed, and feels a million times better. He can also still eat any food he wants to.

Try not to stress too much until you at least see the gastro doctor. Avoid the spicy food and caffiene for now and see what he/she says!

I think you should avoid acidic foods too, like lemonade and tomato sauce.  Also, soda.  I’m glad you have a tenative diagnosis!  I hope that they can fix it and make you all better soon.
